Now that the last event for 2017 has ended and we plan our winter trip to Ocala, FL in just a few week, it is great to take a moment to reflect back on what a great 2017 season Team Selcouth has had!
Some of the accomplishments include our trip to Tryon International Equestrian Center, for the American Eventing Championships, with both Roo and Ripley. They both were very competitive in their divisions in such an electric atmosphere. We also traveled to Lexington, KY for the Retired Racehorse Project, with Freshman Phenom (Gable). He competed in the Dressage and Show Jumping phases and even managed to get a ribbon, placing 9th out of 75 horses in the Show Jumping. I am extremely excited about his future as a top horse. Also, we need to recognize the students of Selcouth, Dawn Willey went out and competed her mount, Falko in her first ever events 3 times and never finshed below 2nd place! Kayley Hildebrand also made leaps and bounds with Bodacious this season, placing 1st and 6th in the events she did as well as working her butt off helping at shows and around the barn! Tuckahoe Pony Club, who trains out of Selcouth, has been steadily growing and thriving and are starting to be very competitive, placing 2nd at the last show jump rally, go TPC!
As I sit and reflect on how great the horses have done this season, ending the season strong, fit and healthy, I cannot even figure out how to express the amount of gratitude I have for my Team, Supporters and Sponsors. Without them, I wouldn’t have been able to do half of what I did this season, so THANK YOU, though that doesn’t seem like a strong enough word. Here’s to an even better 2018 season, which will start in Ocala, FL as Selcouth moves down in the beginning of December, to work for coach, Scott Keach. Stay Tuned!!
